CWN Editor's Note: Blessed Bartolo Longo (1841-1926), a Satanist who returned to the faith, commissioned the Pontifical Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary of Pompei (Italian-language link), which was consecrated in 1901. Twice yearly, on May 8 and on the first Sunday in October the petition to the Virgin is recited solemnly at the shrine.
